If so, in what circumstances?Alice says: I don't feel a pressure because I started wearing it with my own choice (I am the only muslim in my family and I am not married) but I do feel very uncomfortable in hot weathers`SABRINA09.♥   JulianMcMahon            .    _STEPHENMOYER says: Do you wear the full length kind? or the ones that only cover your face?Alice says: I cover my head, I wear jeans or skits (full length) and long shirts or t-shirts that covers my bum <br />22669504762545434250MAHAM NAZ<br />AGE: 15<br />(<br />‘<br />Fatima-sama says:<br /> Helloo!<br />`SABRINA09.♥ JulianMcMahon . _STEPHENMOYER says:<br /> heyy : )<br /> can i start interviewing you?<br /> if something i say offends you, i apologize beforehand,<br /> i dont know much about the culture, but i would love to learn more<br />Fatima-sama says:<br /> Alrighty!<br />`SABRINA09.♥ JulianMcMahon . _STEPHENMOYER says:<br /> soo...<br /> Where do you live?<br /> (you dont have to answer this if you dont want to)<br />Fatima-sama says:<br /> The United States<br />`SABRINA09.♥ JulianMcMahon . _STEPHENMOYER says:<br />Are you a Muslim? If so, do you wear the hijab?<br />Fatima-sama says:<br /> Yes I am Muslim, I do wear the hijab.<br />`SABRINA09.♥ JulianMcMahon . _STEPHENMOYER says:<br /> When did you start wearing the hijab?<br />Fatima-sama says:<br /> I started wearing the hijab long before I had to, like just because I wanted to, but then I actually started wearing it permanently a few months after I turned 11 years old.<br /> 6th grade<br />`SABRINA09.♥ JulianMcMahon . _STEPHENMOYER says:<br /> Do you wear the ones that only cover your face? Or the ones that also cover your feet? (I'm sorry I don't know what it's called)<br />Fatima-sama says:<br /> oh, hah, thats fine, No i do not wear the "Nikab" over my face. what do you mean by the one that covers the feet?<br />`SABRINA09.♥ JulianMcMahon . _STEPHENMOYER says:<br /> There are some that go all the way to the feet<br /> some people call it the..abaya<br />Fatima-sama says:<br /> oh yeah, yeah I sometimes wear the abaya, but not all the time.<br />`SABRINA09.♥ JulianMcMahon . _STEPHENMOYER says:<br /> Under what circumstances do you wear the abaya?<br />Fatima-sama says:<br /> Well whenever I just feel like putting something on real quick, and then my school uniform, and then somethimes while going to the masjid, ect.<br /> mosque<br />`SABRINA09.♥ JulianMcMahon . _STEPHENMOYER says:<br /> Are there times when you feel pressured wearing the hijab? If so, when?<br />Fatima-sama says:<br /> No. I've never felt pressured to wear the hijab. It always felt natural to me since I was a small child, because everyone else around me that were muslim wore it also. So when I had to wear it, it was just normal, like finally being able to wear a bra and not just a training bra. lol. (haha i know weird comparison sorry)<br />`SABRINA09.♥ JulianMcMahon . _STEPHENMOYER says:<br /> haha, its okay!:)<br /> Can you explain why you have to wear it?<br />Fatima-sama says:<br /> Yeah. It is said in the Qur'an (muslim holy book) that the women should draw their veils around them self and cover their adornments. We should cover so that we are looked upon with respect and so that people will see us for ourselves, not just our appearance.<br />`SABRINA09.♥ JulianMcMahon . _STEPHENMOYER says:<br /> mm<br /> Are there times when you get treated differently? Or do you know anybody who has been treated differently because they wear the hijab/abaya?<br />Fatima-sama says:<br /> whoops. sorry got dc.<br /> Yeah well I always get looks and strange glances from people while out somewhere.And then there's always that someone to yell out "A-rab!" or "Go back to your country!" . Then there are boys, they may be like the type of boy to touch girls all the time, then when it comes to me they wont touch me, they'll ask first like "can I get a hug?" or something, instead . which is cool. <br /> My friend, she wears the hijab and one of her substitute teachers was just so mean to her like, "you people always kill innocent people" and then got into this whole argument with her.<br /> oh and then some times if like some people are KNOWN for cussing, and then they cuss around me they'll be like, "oh oops sorry!"<br /> which is funny<br />`SABRINA09.♥ JulianMcMahon . _STEPHENMOYER says:<br /> ahh i see<br /> Are there times when you don't want to wear the hijab?<br /> Or are there times when you want to do your hair a certain way but you can't? (sorry if thats confusing)<br />Fatima-sama says:<br /> lol. yeah, like, i'll probably see a hairstyle that I like and then be like too bad its too puffy under a hijab! Yeah there are times i dont FEEL like wearing the hijab, like when one of my brother's brings their friend over, I'm like ugh cuz i'll have to go put on hijab.<br />`SABRINA09.♥ JulianMcMahon . _STEPHENMOYER says:<br /> mm<br /> haha, i'm watching one of your videos right now,<br />Fatima-sama says:<br /> lol. ah, thanks! which one?<br />`SABRINA09.♥ JulianMcMahon . _STEPHENMOYER says:<br /> The Muslim Tag Q&A<br /> hahaha<br />oh and last question for the survey <br />Fatima-sama says:<br /> o aiight. yeah i have a face book but i DESPISE it!<br />`SABRINA09.♥ JulianMcMahon . _STEPHENMOYER says:<br /> How do you think wearing the hijab affects your daily life? What kinds of effects are they? Positive? Negative?<br /> haha whyy do you despise it?<br />Fatima-sama says:<br /> because its all like "chad wrote on Cindy lu's wall 2.5 seconds ago!" and "new app invites!" like WTH i dont care!<br /> Ok to answer question now. Hmm, yeah of course. wearing hijab affects my daily life because whenever someone sees me they'll see me in hijab and know for a fact that i am muslim or if they dont know they'll know for a fact that something is different about me. Seeing me if they've never seen a muslim before or very few, they'll pay close attention to what I'm doing you know? like if you saw a dude<br /> walking around in a mask and goggles you'd be like "hm why he wearing that?' and start watching him to see what he's doing....<br /> so knowing that I always pay close attention to what i'm doing while in public. If i ever had a thought about say, "stealing" they hijab would stop me because I dont want to set a bad example for myself or Muslims.<br /> its positive because i know not to do something stupid and then negative because NOSY PEOPLE ARE SOOO NOSYYY!<br />
